The City of Rovaniemi sits on the Arctic Circle, the capital of Finnish Lapland. Around the world, people know Official Hometown of Santa Claus as the perfect destination for children of all ages. But Rovaniemi also features romantic Northern Lights vistas, award-winning hotels, an authentic and lively culture, and always: wilderness weaving through and waiting just beyond the city streets.
Santa Claus Village literally lies on the Arctic Circle. When you visit the small theme park, you can follow the line that separates the Arctic from the rest of the world. It travels through Santa Claus Office, through the shops, all the way to the highway. At Santa Claus Village, you can meet Santa for free every day of the year. It’s also a great inlet into your Lapland experience: reindeer rides through snowy back forest, snowmobile safaris across great white marshes, and snowshoe hikes wherever the urge takes you. In summer, visit reindeer and husky farms under the Midnight Sun, or organize a hiking trip on the edge of the Arctic.
At Santa Claus Village, in addition to the Santa- and Christmas-themed shops, pick up a handmade silver necklace from Taigakoru. Try on a jacket made of reindeer leather. There are a number of factory outlets and local workshop stores to ensure you won’t leave empty-handed. Santa Claus Village offers extensive shopping and eating options all-year-round.
